San Javierâ€™s church was built between 1749 and 1752 by Father Martin Schmidt, the Jesuit architect behind many of the mission churches. It was restored by Hans Roth and his local team between 1987 and 1992 and is very authentic. There are large carved pillars throughout the church and much of the interior is original. The building has a low sloping roof with a simple painted facade. Entrance is free and there is an early evening mass held daily in the week.
Also on the main plaza, the Museo Misiones de Chiquitos houses historical musical instruments, the churches original bells and a collection of religious artwork.
